M's one game from topping AL West

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE, Wash. The Seattle Mariners have the ace of their staff, Felix Hernandez, healthy again and they're only one game out of the top spot in the American League West.

With the 21-year-old Hernandez back on the mound for the first time in 26 days last night, the Mariners beat the first-place Los Angeles Angels 11-3. Ichiro Suzuki had the sixth five-hit game of his career to spark a 14-hit Mariners attack. Kenji Johjima and Jose Lopez each hit their fifth homers of the season for Seattle.

Hernandez didn't get the victory, but he did go 3 and 2/3 innings and made 78 pitches in his  first start since April 18th. He was on the 15-day disabled list with a strained forearm.

Hernandez gave up three runs and seven hits before being replaced by Sean White, who earned his first major league win with 4 1-3 innings of scoreless, hitless relief.

The Mariners beat an Angels team that rested All-Star slugger Vladimir Guerrero. The victory gave the Mariners an 18 and 16 record, including 11-7 at Safeco Field. The Angels are 22-18. The Mariners can move into a virtual tie with the Angels for first place in the division Wednesday night at 7:05 in the second game of a three-game series. Manager Mike Hargrove will send Cha Seung Baek, who has a 1-0 record, against the Angels' John Lackey, who is 5-3.
